Biography:

Ranjita Singh

Ranjita is the coordinator of BSM 100 (2014-2015) and BSM 200 (2014-2015) first and second year courses respectively. These business courses are offered by TRSM to students in the other faculties (non business). She had complete responsibility for the courses especially BSM 100. Ranjita designed and administered the course, including developing lecture slides, creating individual and team assignments, and preparing exams.

Ranjita joined TRSM in 2014 from the Amsterdam Business School (ABS), University of Amsterdam. She was an Assistant Professor at the Amsterdam Business School. She taught two Master’s courses and an advanced bachelor’s course at ABS. Ranjita received an Outstanding Teacher Award at ABS in the year 2010. The average student evaluations for my courses were 4.6 on a 1-5 scale. She also supervised numerous Master Students and Bachelor Students theses.

Prior to joining the ABS, Ranjita completed her Ph.D in Strategy from the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto.

Her classroom style combines rigorous pedagogy and practical knowledge. This helps students understand the unique issues of organizations operating in complex, ambiguous and uncertain environments. Ranjita’s goal is to instil students with a deep curiosity about the business issues surrounding them and develop tools to think critically to solve problems in real organizational contexts. She usually uses current business topics for class discussions.
